If a patient has hypothyroidism, in addition to trying herbal remedies for hypothyroidism to improve symptoms, doctors will usually try to treat the issue with thyroid hormone suppliment medication. Most now prescribe synthetics like Levothyroxin and Synthroidwhich are less effective because they lack the full compliment of thyroid hormones found in glandulars, such as Armour Desiccated Thyroid Hormone. This medication comes from a pig's thyroid, which closely resembles a human thyroid. Doctors usually monitor the effectiveness of treatment through blood tests, how the patient feels andbasal body temperature. When administering medications such as Armour, it is best to start with a very low dose and increase the dosage as needed.
